Yay, we've brought another person over to the moss ball side! Hazelrah, now that you're getting a moss ball, you could easily say you live in Mossflower Woods. Just don't mention that your version is a tank with moss balls and not a forest with an abbey for mice. (I love those books but I haven't read them in years, thanks Hazelrah, you've inspired me to go read Redwall again)
LOL, Mossball woods! XD I love the Redwall books too, they're so awesome! Yay, glad that I could do that for you! =D

And I got Nowhere Man and Blue Meany!! I got them yesterday, and just twirled them around in their containers with my finger today. And I still have it, so they aren't evil yet. <.< >.> Yet.

Okay I just purchased a moss ball(harry) for my 3 betta fry who arrived a couple days ago. I have much questions since I just thought you popped em in the tank and forgot about them till I read this.

1- I didn't quarntine Harry!!!! I just stuck him in the 10g tank with my fishies!! Is that bad and is it to late??? How do I quarntine him if so???

2- My tank is betta temp and has a somewhat bright floresent light. Is that way to light for Harry??

3- I found a fancy vase and some fancy glass rocks, can I put Harry in there? Do they have a minimum for tank size??

Okay, now I feel like I'm treating Harry like one of my bettas, lol.

I ended up getting one of these things today. When I brought it home my daughter saw the cup from across the house. She looks over and says "What'd you get daddy?" So I explained to her it was a dark green Betta. She looked at it and then said "Daddy I don't think that's a Betta" So then I told her it was, it was just really sick.
After a while she figured out I wasn't telling her the truth so I showed her the thread about moss ball care. She spent an hour next to the tank wanting to see it "Fart".

Meanwhile I found the part where someone asked if they could climb out of the tank....I don't think she is going to sleep well now.

ALS: Honestly, it seems every os ball is an individual, my m0ss ball, Fluffy (has recently been divided) would move all around the tank no matter where I wedged it... Globe on the other hand... didnt move an inch, even when I switched tanks! (their was suspicion thatmy evil betta, Tihs was the true culprit)

Eziekel: I do, you have to be really careful, put a cup in the water, gently put the moss ball in the cup, take cup out of water, GENTLY squeeze making sure to keep it in ballform.
Moss balls have a tendency to act like little filters and get "clogged" squeezing keeps both them and the tank len :D

19 Bettas:
Hercules, Finn, Flagg, Sammy, Jackpot, Anchovy, Gotham, James, Honey, Echo, Ender, Merle, Orpheus, Dancer, Peanut, Dragon, Omen, Eurydice, Smudge

No, your betta fry should be okay. We mostly quarantine them because . . . well, I really don't know why. We just do, I guess. And your tank temp and light sound fine, moss balls do well in just about any conditions. And yup, if you want, you can put Harry in a fancy vase. Just be sure he gets a bit of light and make sure you squeeze him out once a week. That'll make him happy.
